THE IDLE RACE, THE MOVE
Before joining The Move and finding world-wide fame with ELO, Jeff Lynne played in a band called The Idle Race. As a result of Lynne’s input in terms of singing and song-writing, The Idle Race sound very much like an early version of ELO. They also recorded a song written by Roy Wood of The Move, but withdrew it as a single when The Move released their own version (Here We Go, ‘Round the Lemon Tree). As it a happens, Lynn and Move had both been in Mike Sheridan and The Nightriders, though not at the same time…
“While Mike Sheridan and The Nightriders failed to crack the charts, the band’s line-up during this period included a young lead guitarist and composer named Roy Wood whose first commercial song “Make Them Understand,” appeared on one of the band’s B-sides in 1965. Wood jumped ship to join The Move in December 1965. (…)When they placed an advert in May 1966 for a younger replacement, the winning applicant was Lynne, then a relatively unknown guitar prodigy from the Birmingham district of Shard End. (…) Eager to showcase Lynne’s vocal and guitar skills as well as his growing cache of catchy Beatles-esque songs, the group changed its name, first to Idyll Race, then Idle Race”.
My Generation equals four hours of solid sixties and no longer incorporates Free Speech (which is a separate 4-hour show show on Mon., Tue. and Wed.). The bottom-line of the show is: all the sounds and all the voices of the sixties. My Generation now incorporates Word (interviews, poetry and such) ; also its blues section is now more closely linked to the sixties sounds.
PARIS: CIDISC & JUKE BOX MAGAZINE (part 2)
In this show: Annie Philippe, Dany Boy et Les Pénitents
CIDISC is the name of a record fair held in Paris a few times a year, but in fact it’s much more than just record fair. As it happens, several artists and bands have a stall there, selling their latest records or releases, while talking to fans and autographing any items the collector has brought along. Several authors also have a stall there, selling and autographing their books – be it an autobiography or a study on a particular item related to pop music.
Moreover, there’s always a showcase or a concert – live at the premises – featuring sixties stars and younger artists who revive the genre, focusing France and the early sixties.
Almost everyone I’ve seen or met is most friendly and helpful, creating a very nice atmosphere where ego is out of place.
CIDISC is actually organised by JUKE BOX MAGAZINE and that explains everything, since JUKE BOX is the only French music magazine to keep the sixties alive. Apart from the mag itself, JUKE BOX releases books and records. Chief Editor Jacques Leblanc and his équipe are present all day and available to all visitors.
Next CIDISC: 10 + 11 Oct., Espace Champeret, Paris.
